They play it safe, are quick 2 assassinate what they do not understand. They move in packs ingesting more & more fear w/every act of h8 on 1 another. They feel most comfortable in groups, less guilt 2 swallow. They are us. This is what we have become. Afraid to respect the individual. A single person within a circumstance can move one 2 change. 2 LoVe ourself. To evolve.

What is GroupThink?
Groupthink is a psychological phenomenon that occurs within groups of people. Group members try to minimize conflict and reach a consensus decision without critical evaluation of alternative ideas or viewpoints. Antecedent factors such as group cohesiveness, structural faults, and situational context play into the likelihood of whether or not groupthink will impact the decision-making process.
